Tyler Oakley has some pretty epic plans to celebrate the LGBTQ+ community during Pride Month.

The online star has launched a YouTube series entitled Chosen Family, which will highlight and celebrate different aspects of LGBTQ+ culture and history throughout the month of June.

“Chosen Family is all about celebrating queer life, amplifying disenfranchised voices within the LGBTQ+ community, and honoring our history while fighting for our future,” Oakley tells PEOPLE exclusively about the project.

“Creating the series has enriched my little gay soul, and I’m honored to share it with the world,” he continues. “Not only are we making videos that are so important to me, but each week we’re selling limited edition t-shirts that raise money for causes directly relating to that week’s content. LGBTQ+ Pride is about resilience, and I’m so excited to show that this year.”

Tyler has organized a fundraising opportunity with Represent to design limited edition t-shirts to celebrate a different theme each week for Pride Month. A portion of the proceeds will be going to a different LGBTQ+ organization each week.
